Almost certainly the motor capacitor is blown. Normally it is a 16micr Farad. value. Dont continue trying to use the machine until replaced.

Check the power. If your Kenmore washing machine does not operate at all, you may need to replace defective or blown fuses or reset a tripped circuit breaker. This is done by moving the lever to the "Off" position and back to "On."
Examine the lid switch to see if it is defective. A malfunctioning switch can prevent the machine from operating or spinning. The switch can be found on the inside close to the door frame. Some models also have a special "lid-switch" fuse close by the lid switch within the control panel. A blown fuse will not allow the washer to fill with water.
Unclog the drain line if the machine is spinning but not pumping out water. If the problem still isn't fixed, the pump may need replacing.
Look for a broken pump belt or frozen water pump pulley if the machine does not spin or pump water. Test the pulley by disengaging it from the appliance and physically turning it. It should rotate freely.
Determine if the motor coupler or belts are broken, which could prevent the washer from spinning. Failure to spin also could be the result of a worn clutch, a malfunctioning drive motor, an improperly shifting transmission or a worn or "seized" spin bearing or basket drive. These problems also could keep a washing machine from agitating.
Find the source of a leak by checking the washer's air gap, inlet spout and rubber tube. Replace any items that are cracked, worn, deformed or disengaged.
Test the motor coupler, water-inlet valves and the drain hoses if your clothes are wet following the spin cycle. Replace these parts as needed.
Hope this might help u out!
